Free agent linebacker/defensive end Dwight Freeney is not an option for the Redskins, a source said. With Junior Galette lost again for the season after tearing his right Achilles Sunday the Redskins could use more rush help. But they won't turn to the 36-year old Freeney, who had nine sacks with Arizona last season.

The Redskins also waived safety Kyshoen Jarrett after he failed a physical. Jarrett suffered nerve damage in his arm during the 2015 regular season finale. The Redskins did not anticipate his return this season; Jarrett did not participate in offseason practices. He was a key contributor as a backup safety/slot corner and special teams player as a rookie.
